When news hit the web that Nick Jonas had been rushed to the hospital on Sunday, May 16, fans were pretty worried. For those who missed it, TMZ reported that the Jonas Brothers member had been injured on set of a secret project, and that he had to be “taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital,” but they didn’t have a lot of details on what exactly happened to him. Now, the singer is finally explaining what went down.
What Happened To Nick Jonas?
It turns out, Jonas (who is currently a judge on Season 20 of The Voice) got into a bike accident while filming the upcoming NBC special Olympic Dreams with his brothers Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas. The artist explained that he flipped off his bike and unfortunately cracked his rib.
“We did just announce that we are doing this show with NBC for the Olympics called Olympic Dreams. Me and the brothers are competing against each other in Olympic sports, and one of the events required me riding a bicycle,” he told Extra in a new interview. “Basically, I lost control of the bike and flipped off of it, kind of ugly. Again, I do feel really good… Just been getting rest when I am not on The Voice sitting in my chair… Honestly, I feel really fortunate, feel really good. [It’s] just one of those injuries you can’t really do anything about, just have to wait it out and deal with some of the pain. I feel good. I feel like it could have been a lot worse, so coming away with just this is all good.”
During Monday night’s episode of The Voice, he also spoke out about the incident.
“I’m feeling OK,” he said, when asked how he was holding up. “I cracked a rib from a spill on a bike and a few other bumps and bruises, but I just want to go ahead and say that, in case I’m not as physically enthusiastic as I usually am.”
What Exactly Is ‘Olympic Dreams?’
According to Deadline, Olympic Dreams will be an hour long special set to air on July 21, 2021. It will pit Joe, Nick and Kevin against each other with help from some of USA’s best athletes. Wow, sounds intense!
“For the three Jonas brothers raised in Wycoff, NJ, becoming Olympians was a dream established at an early age. And it was only sidelined by another lofty goal: pop stardom. Now, after more than a decade as one of music’s biggest acts, the Jonas boys are ready to prove they have what it takes to compete at an Olympic level,” the outlet reported.

“We couldn’t be more excited to officially announce we are going on tour THIS summer and bringing our friend Kelsea Ballerini!” the band said in a statement. “If this past year has taught us anything, it’s that we need to remember the important moments in our lives. We hope these shows will be special moments for our fans, our friends and our families and we can’t wait to see all their faces soon!”
And that’s not all. We also have a brand new song to get excited about! Their upcoming single, “Remember This,” is coming out on June 18, 2021, and we cannot wait. According to a press release, the track will “tell an Olympic-inspired story with athlete imagery and will feature a special message from the Jonas Brothers.” Ugh, can it be June 18 already?!
Do They Have An Album Coming?
So does the tour and new single announcement mean that a full album is in the works? Well, for those who missed it, the former Disney group actually confirmed that their next album was ready in February 2020.
“Yeah, a new album. It’s coming,” Nick said during an appearance on The Tonight Show. “We figured, why slow down. Literally two or three weeks [after Happiness Begins came out] we were with a bunch of our songwriting friends, we went somewhere to record to write and came out with a record pretty much done.”
But they revealed a few months later that they had decided to post-pone it because of the coronavirus pandemic.
